In my experience the time served waiting for trial is generally applied as credit toward the time sentenced. However, this may not hold true in all cases and I have no knowledge if this must be done or not. It is what I have seen applied in every case I have been involved with, however.

Thank you, is there any one that can point me towards the correct Calif Penal Code for reading on this matter? It seems it should be black and white to either yes or no.
